An old steam-powered train engine will be rolling through Kansas this weekend. Union Pacific's legendary engine number 844 will pull in to Marysville, Kansas tomorrow (SAT) night. U-P spokesman Mark Davis says the old locomotive typically travels a few hundred miles a day, and makes frequent stops.
The locomotive, from the 1940s, will pass through Topeka on Sunday, on its way to Little Rock, Arkansas. The train will also stop at Union Station in downtown Kansas City on Monday.
